Marquette University’s NROTC program was founded in 1940, and celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 1990. In honor of that occasion, Delbert Patrick Thomas Carey undertook the challenge of compiling a highly detailed and well-documented 170-page soft-cover book on the history of NROTC at Marquette.  A surviving copy was located in 2014. The title is: “Gentlemen of a Liberal Education.”

Bill Hayes (Class of ‘62) has evolved that document into an easy to read Time Line Histor  .Chapetr 6 concludes the effort to timeline Mr. Carey’s work. Bill with the help of others has created a timeline version of the past 25 years. Chapter 7 is the first new chapter. We will release the remaining three chapters between now and September as part of our 75th Anniversary celebration.
